I wanted to close this week by writing about an outfit that caught my attention just a few weeks ago, and it was Bretman Rock‘s peculiar one for the Variety Power of Young Hollywood event.
As it often happens with men, there was some heavy research involved in this article, because sometimes things are not even disclosed, and paired with the hurdle of finding outfits that are deserving of attention, I could not miss the chance to write about something that I fell in love with instantly.
For the event, Rock donned an Aniye Records single breasted Poker blazer in printed fabric, paired with an off-white asymmetrical Koy blouse with ruffle detail underneath and a pair of printed fabric Over Poker palazzo trousers.
Each piece was part of the Winter 2023-2024 collection.
He also paired his eccentric ensemble with black Giuseppe Zanotti Gz-yana platform shoes, a Miansai Mini Dove necklace in sterling silver and some statement rings that were sadly not identifiable because they were covered by the long sleeves.
One of the most beautiful aspects of this look was Bretman‘s makeup, courtesy of Eros Gomez.
Gomez matched the red hearts on Rock‘s outfit with a graphic red eyeliner that was extended towards the temples for a sultrier look. He also dabbed a bit of red on the center of the beauty influencer’s lips to tie everything together.
The hair was styled in beachy fresh-out-of-the-shower waves with a middle part by Angel Gonzalez. The look just worked, I can’t honestly imagine it with dry hair, maybe because the soft nature of the shirt goes hand in hand with it.
Of course the Filipino-American beauty influencer worked once again with stylist Brian Meller.
Meller made Bretman one of the most interesting personalities to watch style-wise. He found someone who lets his creativity run free, willing to risk it and evolve with him. Also, can we praise Meller for his ability to work with undiscovered designers?
There are many emerging talents that would just need a little push to make it big and as we all know, if you do not have many eyes on you to begin with, it can be an incredibly difficult task.
Seeing Bretman and Meller work as a link between “to be unknown” and “to be known” in this volatile business earns them several points and makes them changemakers, a word that has such a nice ring to it.
Meller should definitely be on your radar, you’ll thank me later.
The Variety Power of Young Hollywood event celebrated the most promising emerging talent in show business.
Sony Electronics and Ford were the sponsors of the evening.
